I have some image processing and editing tasks like resizing images based on various algorithmic outputs such as largest cyclic edges/contour in the image, filtering out certain colors, as well as remove certain backgrounds similar to a green screen. I am more inclined towards using MATLAB for this. Are there any advantages over MATLAB if I use GIMP? Programming/Scripting language or API integration is not a factor. Thanks for the help!
For algorithmic image manipulation there is very little that can equal OpenCV3.
